Democratic Sens. Bernie Sanders and Barbara Boxer will hold a news conference on Thursday to announce new legislation that would put a fee on carbon dioxide emissions to help fund green-energy projects such as wind, solar, geothermal, and biomass.
The legislation would also compensate consumers for higher energy bills.In his State of the Union address on Tuesday night, President Obama threatened to use his executive authority if Congress failed to act on climate change.
“But if Congress won’t act soon to protect future generations, I will,” Obama added. “I will direct my Cabinet to come up with executive actions we can take, now and in the future, to reduce pollution, prepare our communities for the consequences of climate change, and speed the transition to more sustainable sources of energy.”
I wonder where these geniuses think they will get the money to help us with the higher energy bills? The higher taxes ALWAYS soak the middle class and poor the most
